dc.description.abstractThis thesis investigates the nature of memory in the Iliad. Chapter 1 analyzes the meaning of the verb μιμνήσκομαι (usually translated as ‘remember, have in mind’); it concludes that this verb refers to an experience which is intrinsically both mental and bodily, and that the verb therefore has a more restricted meaning than English ‘remember’. Chapter 2 discusses the relationship of μιμνήσκομαι to memory in general within the Iliad, focusing in particular on the performance of paradigmatic memories by characters within the poem. Chapter 3 uses the results of Chapters 1 and 2 to illuminate a particular literary question: how do memory and the experience referred to by the verb μιμνήσκομαι underlie Achilles’ character development in the Iliad.
